Although you can't touch (or photograph) most of the items in the exhibition, there are a number of interactive elements, including a chance to get "sorted" into your favorite Hogwarts house. Visitors with children should be aware that there's a film sequence at the beginning of the exhibit that might be a bit scary for young visitors. Coat/bag check is complimentary, but on weekends, you cannot check coats, only strollers and bags. I'd recommend visiting during the week if possible to avoid having to take your cold-weather gear with you through the exhibit.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $22.50 for seniors and $19.50 for children 4-12. Kids under 4 are free. Advance purchase online or by phone 866-987-9692 is recommended.
